released some 50,000 individuals to serve their time locally, and these offenses that we were talking about here are currently in the list of offenses that were to be served in county jails now. and if the notion here is to provide services and treatment to these individuals from a practical point of view, and i lean heavily on my experience as a misdemeanor prosecutor for all those years when we did possession offenses, when we tried many, many under the influence offenses, especially heroin, i don't see that under the current system that reducing these penalties from felony to misdemeanor is going to have any incentive for this population to obtain treatment. i also do not agree that under this measure that locally there will be additional moneys available for treatment. i noticed in the list of supporters for senator leno's measure, it's heavily supported by people in the treatment community. i think that that's great because we all understand that treatment does work. treatment in these forms of addiction will help these people get on track because they are broken. i think there is a ge

and the allowing of competition within telecommunications market, where it wasn't just local phone service by pac bell anymore. long distance and local phone service competition was an opt-in type of program. there was dissatisfaction with the amount of penetration that was achieved by competitors when that market was attempted to be opened up. so i think that influenced the thinking of the policymakers at the -- in the assembly and senate oversight committees that oversee electric telecommunications issues, because those are combined committees. back in 2002, when that happened, that is my recollection of the formation and dialogue that was happening at that time. that doesn't preclude us. the opt-out requirements don't preclude us from having a preenrollment phase, a phase that allows us to say, hey, this is the program we are proposing. who wants in. we can certainly do that. we are planning to do that, commissioner, so that as part of our education and notification we are really talking to folks who want to learn more and to participate in the program, as well as talking to folks who really a

monica bay. other cities and towns release treated wastewater, or effluent, into local rivers, lakes, and streams. as it flows downstream, additional cities may capture it for drinking water, consume it, and treat the water again. in other words, the water coming out of a wastewater treatment plant often enters the watershed, flows into intakes of drinking water treatment plants, and eventually finds its way right back to our faucets. it takes huge investments to ensure that wastewater and drinking water treatment plants function properly to maintain a safe water supply. we made the initial investments in the plants and the pipes. but once we accomplished that, there was this great recognition that we had a series of issues associated with wet weather conditions. storm events where, all of a sudden, you're dealing with a lot of water. narrator: large amounts of rainwater can cause flooding. engineers developed two approaches to stormwater infrastructure to transport water away from the urban environment. one approach was to carry waste and stormwater through the same pipe. this combi
